Maybe you'd have a case if you went about screaming "911 was done by bush and a currupt government" but you don't have THAT in your signatures do you?
certainly didn't forget about WWII, but I have to raise an eyebrow over the consensus of isolationalism. People knew it was going on, but it wasn't until Pearl Harbor that the U.S. got involved. Even considering the scope of the camps wasn't imagined as close to the reality.... I still find it fairly revolting that America was fairly complacent with it all-even seeing what was being done with the UK and France (The later being the first ally of the U.S.).
Here's the quote from old Happy Hermann himself:“Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country".The Op is doing the same it seems to me.
